Balancing Service with Daily Life - Transcript

Austin: Interfacing the drill with my personal life has actually been a pretty seamless process. Initially, I thought one weekend a month was a whole lot. The recruiter did put it into a little bit of a perspective and said that, you know, it is only one weekend a month, so in a six-year commitment, that's only 72 weekends that you're actually out here and actively participating. And that really isn't that huge of a time commitment, but as far as a personal life goes and everything else, you can work around that. My work has been extremely understanding of my commitment, and my desire to join and everything else, and they've worked with me completely on being able to work with the Guard, and being able to work with them.
